    The 285/60R16 would fit alright, but they have to be mounted on a 8.0-9.5" wide rim. Stock is 7". It might still be possible to mount them but it will not look good and tire stability on the rim might suffer. They are 1 1/4" taller than stock this is a 5/8" change in radius. Your speedo would be off 4.1% (showing slower).
    I would stick to the size you got they are available from many manufacturers...you should be able to find the tread you like:

    I just realized the width of the tire, and only having a 7 in wide rim. I just may go to a 275 60 16. A friend of mine said that he had the 285 60 16 GT II's on his stock f150 rims and they started to cup on him, plus the side wall stuck out a lot. Since goodyear does not make a performace tire in the 275's im just going to go with TOYO, i see in all the truck magizines they are rated very high. What does everyone think of toyo tires?

    Your choices when going to 275/60R16 are very limited. I know only of the TOYO PROXES and the Pirelli Scorpion Zero. For some reason Pirelli allows mounting on different rim widths ranging 7.5-9.5". The TOYO is specified at 8.5-11" rim width. I would still be cautious and only go for the Pirelli.....

    i wanted to kind of stay away from Pirelli, only got about 17,000 miles out of them. Even with proper rotation and tire pressure. Of course my driving habits dont help eather. Ever since i had the truck lowered i love taking corners fast. The 16 inch tire market is very limited to truck performace tires.

    I've seen several trucks with 285/60 16 on stock wheels, they won't be as tall as the tires you have on there now.

    Yep, im trying to get away from such a large profile. the 275's i have now are 31.16 dia. and the 285's are 29.46. Thats going to drop my truck 1.7" lower, but then a little more fender gap too. That why 20's are nice because it fills in the fender gap
